Great place to visit and no costs. The Liberty Bell exhibit was a great reminder that it has taken time for liberty to spread among Americans. Great park rangers and volunteers.

The Historical Park has many aspects that could take a few hours to explore. The Visitor Center is welcoming and the Rangers were easy to engage and learn more about the deep history of Philly.
